Info module shows battery charge without a battery

We have a 2 year old AGM battery for the house (2017 Redhawk ) that the KIB info panel showed at blinking 3 pips charge after 1 week plugged in. Took it to AutoZone and battery 100% charge. So, before putting the battery back in, I checked the panel and lo and behold, without a battery, showed the same blinking 3rd pip. Now how can that be? I know enough not to rely on the gauges to show accurate tanks, but this is the first time I have had a fault show on the battery. What to do?? Replace the whole panel? Get a different gauge for just the battery? Troubleshoot??

Was it plugged in to shower power? If so, that's why it's showing battery voltage, because the converter is powering the 12V system.

That is the result of autocorrect without proofreading I'm hoping. If that was the intention, I have no idea.

Presumably meant "Shore power" aka the grid. plugged in at home or a campsite.

This should really be under bonehead moment. I trusted hubby’s info….Yup…It was plugged into shore power so obviously read! Plus…he was pushing the tank readings and reporting it as battery readings!. At what point are hubbies too old to ……?????

I can answer that. We should be put out to Stud around 55 or so.
Then a quick trip to the glue factory around, umm...

No, wait...
I've got that wrong.

Probably meant "flower power". If you know that term you are indeed old and decrepit like I am.

Not bonehead at all-still an issue

Well, let’s try this again… AGM battery is 100% charged at 14.5. We are plugged into home power, 15 or 20 amp, yet indicator lights will show 1 in the morning and 2-3 later in the day. Running Max air fan in bathroom 25/7. When I extend the awning, it goes free and willingly. To return it, it barely moves and I get a battery beep!. Start generator while still plugged in and it winds up just fine. Progressive EMS reads all good. It seems that even while plugged in, the unit is using the battery??
